Lansing, P. (n.d.). Social, Public Health and Environmental Consequences Attached to Raising Salmon. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Dear Commissioners, There are serious social, public health and environmental consequences attached to raising salmon and other finfish in open net-cage feedlots. I am writing on behalf of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy to outline some of these consequences and to make recommendations for changes in U.S. policy. The presence of net cage salmon facilities in the U.S. and worldwide has profound negative effects on wild populations of salmon. The main problems have been well documented: spread of disease, spread of parasites, escapee competition for resources and interbreeding with wild population. In Europe and on the eastern U.S. seaboards these problems have seriously endanger wild populations already under stress from other causes, in some cases eradicating entire runs. Here in the Pacific Northwest that process seems to be well underway, with approximately 400,000 salmon escapes per year in Canada alone and active colonization by feral salmon in 78 British Columbia and 4 Alaska streams. These are the known cases. Vast stretches of coastal waterways in the Northwest and Alaska are not monitored.
